    Tried this offline and there is a lot of sign flickering, too off-putting
  4. There seems to be a few flickering signs but they are mostly in the pits and I can honestly say when lapping I didn't notice any, if any one wants a setup Wednesday just give me a shout.

    Turn before swimming pool and then swimming pool itself plus others.
  7. I'm in for that ! Pretty good combo that time, and that Monaco version is so pleasant to drive.

  10. I'm in :thumbsup:

    You dont need brakes at Monaco. There are enough crash barriers to slow down ;)

    Hi guys,
    I would like to drive this race with you and maybe some future races too.
    Thats my first race here.
    I'm looking forward to it and hope to be at home in time. If not I will tell you.

    Some tips,

    When you select a car the are some upgrades in the "tuning" menu.
    2 Tires brands, 3 engines, 3 aero packs, ...

    In the RD setup section the is a setup for this car from @Simon Christmann .
    IMO it's a better setup then default to start from.
  14. Hey, sorry but i can't instal the mod :(

  18. I had a lonely race but an enjoyable one, if I had found the pace a bit earlier I would have been able to battle with the leaders, after about 6 laps I got on to the same pace more or less but they had a big gap by then, I was lucky to finish 2nd but I will take it :D

  19. Nearly missed qualy. Spun on my first timed lap and was only in P5 but i had a good last lap and ended on pole :cool:
    I had not the best start (Red Bull Ring gearing is not ideal for Monaco :D) but i could stay in front. For the first maybe 10min we stay as a close trio at the front. But then @Gijs van Elderen decided to lose one wheel. I could build a gap without taking to much risk. So i tried to manage it from the front knowing i had a superb top speed. But then i took it to easy made a mistake at the pool chicane and lost P1 to @Andreas Oehrlich. But i recovered could push and overtake him again 2 laps later on the way to Massent. Then i was again in the control mode. I did again a mistake at the pool chicane but this time i went straight. But i lifted so that i had no advantage. In the last lap Andreas also decided to lose a wheel and the gap to Martin had been already 20sec so that i could cruise it home.

    Only 6 starters but an intense and exciting race :thumbsup:

    I had a sloppy start. Side by side through T1. :speechless: I thought it would be impossible.
    But... No contact at all. :thumbsup:

    After that i was hold up :whistling: by Andreas and Simon for a while! :p Getting a good clean pass is nearly impossible if the guys in front of you don't make mistakes. :barefoot:

    Then i made a little mistake... and lost a wheel. I went to the pits and suffered a 10 min damage repair...

    I felt really comfy with this car track combo and had a good race pace. Damn wheel...:cautious:
